We got up this morning at o-dark-thirty and picked up M.'s boyfriend to go to the Colorado Balloon Festival. They hold it every Labor Day weekend, and we try to go every year. It was a nice, brisk morning, about 53 degrees, and the skies were crystal clear and the winds were nowhere to be seen -- perfect weather for a balloon launch! Of course, right after the first wave, both K. and S. had to go to the bathroom, and since there were no portapotties to be found (thanks City budget cuts!), we headed off to the car, and made our way home. Just as well, Kari was waiting for us patiently in her crate. It was a nice morning - here are a few of the pics, I'll load them up on our shutterfly family site.
I know I take the same pictures of the same balloons every year, but they're just so amazingly colorful and beautiful, I just can't help myself! :-)
